I think KW has been actively trying to address this problem, but it will take a long time to rebuild its brand.
You are absolulely right, and it is of pure consequence to consumers now due to certain retailers undermining KW products by selling them at cost or below cost just to move their own inventory.
KW Suspension is top shelf grade, especially the Clubsport and Competition line.
Having experience with Ohlins (we are their dealer) and JRZ as well, the competition and clubsport KW lines are awesome in comparison and cost less.
The best part about buying KW suspension is that not much "user R&D" needs to be done any longer, KW did pretty much all of it. Its mainly up to us car builders to set them up ideally for the driver and car.
